Quite a few regional cloud and data center announcements already this week that are worth a look:
In North Carolina, Sentinel Data Centers got some new fiber connectivity to its giant 420,000 square foot Durham facility. The non-profit regional network MCNC has built NCREN's fiber into NC-1. Additionally, MCNC plans to house its customers' data in the same location.
In New York City, 325 Hudson added a new carrier to its community. Global Cloud Xchange has established a PoP in the facility's meet-me room. That's the former Reliance Globalcom, which last month announced a new transpacific effort that if completed finally finish off the last leg of the former Flag telecom's global circumnavigation plans.
In California, the data center operator vXchnge also has some new connectivity. Integra has built is fiber into their Santa Clara data center as part of an ongoing campaign to increase its on-net footprint.
In Texas, the network operator Alpheus Communications has completed an expansion of its colo facility at 1906 E. 6th in Austin. Alpheus's pace of investment picked up after the private equity group Gores took the reins three years ago. Seems likely they'll eventually become an M&A target again at some point, and right now Texas is getting a lot of fiber attention overall.
And Peak has won a managed service provider partner for its whitelabel cloud. The Pinnacle Group will be using the technology platform to power its portfolio, especially its storage and infrastructure services.
